Or just use your body weight or household items :O

Seriously, when I did hardcore workouts in martial arts we used nature and ourselves for free. Examples are pull ups on trees, wall sits with a heavy object or person jumping on you, many variety of push ups (some times on a round object), and so on. A lot of these new things coming out are just for money, and even though they persuade you with all these fancy pictures of people improving muscle mass and tone, the same thing could be accomplished for free with hardwork and creativity, just saying.

Also, I'm pretty sure there's a way to pirate the DVDs that cost a lot of money, so right away I would take those out of the equation.

If I had to choose, I'd go with base if you're budget conscious, or deluxe if you have a little more money. Ultimate is overkill and a marketing technique, from my experience.

Body weight fitness
You should for for body weight fitness it's much cheaper. http://www.reddit.com/r/bodyweightfitness/wiki/faq Insanity, P90X and similar programs are cardio. They will improve endurance, but they are not good for strength or muscle size.(a copy and paste from the faq)

Definitely buy a pull up bar. Or you can go to a local park and see if they have like monkey bars where you can practice pulls ups, muscle ups, or practice dips on one of those double bar thingys. If you want a program to go with the pull up bar, you can follow this. http://harrycloudfoot.com/2012/05/11/self-experiment-barstarrz-increase-your-pull-ups-reviewed-get-mad-results-in-6-weeks/

P90X is a terrible program - it's pretty much just Tony Horton being his usual loser self, and trying to show off. The mentality for this is just awful.

You're much better off getting Shaun T's Insanity program, I believe a lot of people can agree with me on this as well. I've done both, but it's up to you.
